French & Webb 50′ Wings was inspired by John Alden’s Malabar yacht series. This yacht was designed by C.W. Paine, who describes Wings as his “masterpiece”. She represents the perfect balance of traditional aesthetics, modern technology and materials. Wings was built by the exceptional Maine craftsmen of French & Webb in Belfast, Maine.

No expense was spared building and maintaining this extraordinary yacht. She was built of the best materials and components available in the world. The joinery and woodworking in Wings are second to none. All of her exterior wood trim and fixtures were made from a single teak log, sourced from Asia for this yacht, to assure perfect grain and color match.  

She must be seen to be fully appreciated.

The interior is beautifully appointed, comfortable, functional, and large. Functional for both living aboard and extended cruising. Below decks, attention to detail is evident everywhere on looks, from the bamboo cabin sole to the beach stone shower stall floor.

Alabaster sconces, deep-mahogany stained woodwork, and white bulkheads and overheads create a very warm, inviting, traditional interior.
